As the volume and speed of network data increases, security
tools are unable to keep up, resulting in security tool sprawl,
performance degradation, inefficiencies and unnecessary
expenditures. All of this leads to increased time to threat
detection and response and a higher risk of a breach - despite
Are your threat prevention tools struggling to keep up with the
increasing speed of your organization's network? Is the number
and variety of security tools you think you need starting to tax
your budget and overcomplicate your security infrastructure?
This paper outlines how the GigaSECURE® Security...
It's time to face a hard truth: Modern enterprise networks can be extremely sometimes
